Research Fellow, University of Sheffield

In 2010, I graduated from the University of Sussex with a BA in Geography. I returned to the University of Sussex for an MSc in Social Research Methods and a PhD in Human Geography funded by the ESRC. While carrying out the PhD, I was a visiting researcher at the University of Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand and at Queen’s University, Canada. Then I worked at the University of Keele.

In May 2018 I joined the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at Sheffield as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow funded by the Urban Studies Foundation. My research seeks to explore issues of urban inequality through ‘studying up’. It focuses on wealth and the wealthy in second-tier cities.

Research interests: wealth and urban inequality; migration; difference; urban ethnography and qualitative methodologies.
